Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

A pre-season hero is a guy that has little to no chance of actually making the team. Yet you will have those that are convinced the guy is the already on his way to Canton and we are making a grave mistake by letting him go. And what happens is the guy gets cut, perhaps catches on with someone else's practice squad, but mostly they just fall by the wayside and join the ranks of the Jesse Lumsden's or Sultan McCullough's of the world.

That's a pre-season hero.

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

Chris Baker for me...I think he qualifies as hall of fame, preseason material

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

I would add to what Matty said that the preseason hero has a "who?" quality to him. Some people here are talking about "comeback player" award instead.

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

Maybe someone will jump out after the first game, but I am kinda glad that we as a fan base aren't looking to a no-name to make a major impact for once. I think that says something about the way our program is being built now, and for once, maybe we have enough quality players that we no longer need that one no-name saviour. That is as long as RGIII pans out, other wise the 5th string qb is my bet.

Maybe that is true for you. But for me, we have no chance to win a single game without the great Monte Lewis!

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

apparently Tim Hightower has now been listed as the number one RB on the depth chart. Dont know if that will hold until opening day, but its something.....

Redskins training camp: Tim Hightower is first on the depth chart at RB - The Insider - The Washington Post

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

Tristan Davis.. He's got great straight line speed and should flash against future UPS delivery guys and make us wonder why he isn't the starter.

As long as Helu and Royster each get their carriees, I don't care who our starting running back is. Tim Hightower did a good job for us last season until he went down with that torn ACL. But he still trailed both Royster and Helu in yards per attempt. I hope Tim Hightower can improve his yards per carry average this season as well as stay healthy. He might not be the starter the entire season anyhow.

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

Rex Grossman ............... joking

Adam Gettis and Jordan Bernstine - Dont know if they will tear it up so much as fill in nicely due to the lack of depth on both the o-line and the db's - but whatever the reason I think that they both make the roster and we will all be more than happy to have them - Minnifield would have been my pick instead of Bernstine if he wasnt injured.

Re: Who Will Be This Summer's Pre-Season Hero

I actually think that keenan robinson can turn up in a big time player with a little coaching and bulking up. He could eventually be a ball hawk of a LB. Has to learn to cover better in space though, but I think that is within the realm of possibility......

I had actually for three minutes forgotten about the oline issues and was getting very excited for the season to start. You have saddened me. Ok - sorry - back to the topic at hand.

<sigh> People just don't get it.

Think Sultan McCollough - players who make you say "Who???"

This is the guy that will surprise the most, I think he's a beast.

Pretty much. I don't understand why it's so hard to get, in the past we've never had a problem latching onto a previously unknown player after a stellar preseason performance.

Don't think it counts, but Kirk Cousins will be an all star in each preseason game. He'll perform like the second coming of Tom Brady against guys not making a team.
Kirk Cousins is actually a good choice for this award.
